quick trip -- help!

Jump to last reply

My husband was just asked to go to Nairobi and Kigali (Kenya and Rwanda) NEXT WEEK on business, and we're thinking of taking 3-4 days after his meetings to do a short safari. A gorilla trek would be great, but can we arrange one in this short a time? What other don't-miss things are there in vicinity of Nairobi and Kigali? Is there anyplace that doesn't charge a $500 fee to see the gorillas? I've never been to Africa, and we don't have much money to spend on this trip. Husband's business ocassionally takes him to emerging nations, so I'm used to roughing it, trekking, etc, and don't mind if things aren't of US standards. (Trust me -- I know people who think Holiday Inn is roughing it.) Husband works with Dept. of Commerce, so U.S. consulate offices will be helpful on city stuff. If you can recommend wildlife areas, guides, expected fees, etc. that would be very hepful.

Thanks!
